Peter is a film & television director, producer, and EP with two decades of international experience creating documentary feature films. After traveling to over 80 countries, Peter is fluent in Spanish and Portuguese. He is committed to developing and producing compelling content with a purpose. Peter believes that storytellers have a distinct responsibility to bring entertaining, authentic stories to the screen. Last year, he produced HBO’s Torn Apart: Separated at the Border with Oscar-winning director Ellen Goosenberg. He also joined forces with Fisher Stevens, Mark Monroe, Sebastian Junger, and Nick Quested for a National Geographic feature documentary, Blood on the Wall, airing September 2020.

Director Statement

Sounding the Alarm was the single most important body of work I’ve created in my career. Humanizing the climate crisis is now an ongoing mission I wish to dedicate my energy toward until we start to find solutions to the massive problem we all face.
